Impression 5 Gets Sponsorship with MSU Health

Curious minds are healthy minds.

For more than 50 years, Impression 5 Science Center in downtown Lansing has been boosting knowledge by feeding the inquisitiveness of children throughout mid-Michigan with a deeper understanding of the world.

Now an even bigger helping of healthy knowledge is about to get served up thanks to a new partnership.

Impression 5 and Michigan State University Health Care announced a multi-year sponsorship that will provide significant financial support for the mission of the science center at 200 Museum Drive. Throughout the sponsorship, Impression 5 and MSU Health Care will work together to increase access to educational programming, events, traveling exhibits and more. The missions of Impression 5 Science Center and MSU Health Care will combine to educate and promote science, technology, engineering and math education and careers to local youth around the region.

“Our sponsorship of the Impression 5 Science Center underscores our commitment to fostering a healthier future,” Seth Ciabotti, MSU Health Care CEO, said in a news release. “By investing in STEM education and promoting healthy habits from an early age, we aim to empower the next generation with the knowledge and skills they need to lead fulfilling lives. Together, we are sowing the seeds of curiosity, discovery and wellness, nurturing a generation poised to make a positive impact on our collective future.”

The involvement of MSU Health Care has already made an impact to the science center through its medical support of the 2023 Capital City River Run, which saw more than 1,000 athletes last fall. As the new sponsorship grows, future connections to the science center are planned to develop. Funding will be used to secure a future health-related traveling exhibit, create a health-career-focused event to encourage youth to connect and explore STEM careers, and further develop and promote the Museums for All scholarship program.
